I had never been closed to a mill before.. but it seemed I was with one each week in the past two weeks ..
This is Ellis Windmill on Mill Road in Lincoln, behind Museum of Lincolnshire Life. There were 9 windmills on Mill road before, but Ellis mill is the only one left today. It was a bit windy when I was there, the sails were turning.. standing under the mill, listening to the story about the mill told by the volunteers... it took me back to the centuries..made me feel very small..
Thank you all very much for your advices on my previous windmill photo. This photo was shot underneath the mill, I was a lot closer to it. I didn't make it as "dramatic" as the previous one..but I cropped off some sky this time... I'd like to have your idea about this one as well. Burn and dadge tool have been used on the sky.
Thanks for looking. I don't think that I will take more mills' image in the near future.
BTW, thank you all very much for your adivces on my uploading yesterday. Especially thank Lynne for her MOD on "Skit in the air". I'll upload her work under this photo's MOD section for you to enjoy.
